The service was extremely slow and the restaurant was basically empty. Only 2 other tables. It took an hour to get our food and when we finished eating, we waited another 25 mins until the server came by to see if we needed anything - which we needed our checks. The checks were wrong and had to be redone. The food was fine. Overall, the restaurant was fine, but I don't see myself going back.

Wonderful Place for any adult gathering. I celebrated my 50th and it was wonderful. Food was reasonable price. Not very cheap but not expensive. Parking was a challenge because it was in a town center. Our waiter was ok BUT for a Nice restaurant the waiter need to be more outstanding. I would give the place a 5 star but feel the waiter could have been upscale all smile and cheerful. He was not bad but needed someone more talkative and friendly. But other than that it was a wonderful Experience.

Inside is elegant. Outside seating is charming. Entrees are well prepared although smaller than average portion sizes. Really enjoyed the desserts; again the size relative to the price could be improved.

First time visitors to this restaurant. Made a reservation via Open Table. We arrived on time and were greeted with a smile and the hostess found our reservation quickly. She seated us in a lovely booth next to the window. Our server Ashanti could not have made our visit any more pleasant. She was happy, helpful and attentive. The food was delicious from appetizer to dessert. The Pecorino Dip is to die for and served with fresh green apple, sweet honey and fresh, crusty bread. Our entrees were hot and as expected. I had Shrimp Scampi and my husband had Lobster Ravioli. We shared a Tiramisu for dessert; just enough for a sweet bite after dinner. The wine is a bit pricey which is the only thing they might consider adjusting. Wine is so nice with dinner but it should not cost as much as an entree!

I got the grilled salmon and was disappointed. Sometimes trying to be different in a dish can go wrong. I didn't expect the salmon to be on top of several vegetables. No rice, potatoes - just all cooked vegetables. The cube cut sweet potatoes were overwhelming the dish. The plate reminded me of a salad. The salmon was good but the different vegetables underneath it threw me off. The restaurant is nice inside and has a nice ambience. I requested a window seat and it was honored. I probably should have ordered a more Italian dish and not the salmon.

My hubby and I choose this location for Date Night. We were seated at a booth along the window. The window ledge was dusty with remnants of past meals (crumbs) visible. We ordered the artichoke dip for our appetizer when it arrived 20 minutes later it was literally ice cold. Our meal was mediocre at best.

Bravo was the perfect place to celebrate a memorable milestone for our family. The staff was very warm and attentive, not to mention polite. Everyone in our party of 18 enjoyed their meal. The Veal parmigiana was spot on. we really enjoyed ourselves and Bravo helped make it a day to remember.

This last time we went was meh. We were celebrating our 6 year anniversary and the food was okay, the waiter was okay, no extra effort, it was a Saturday night and we had reservations at 730 PM, got our table right away, but it was all meh. The selection was limited and no coffee available. We are the parents of twin 4-year-olds so when we go out we like to be a bit pampered. Didn't get that feeling this time. We will try again next year, might have been just an off night.

In order to get the comment section I had to rate the restaurant, but there was nothing to rate... I made reservation and when we arrived at there, showed the host my phone with the open table reservation and she said - "oh, our website was messed up and it kept taking reservations when we had none, so this reservation is not valid"... If you would like to wait, we can seat you as soon as possible... So,, not at all a good experience, especially since this was first time using Open Table.... DISAPPOINTED IS AN UNDERSTATEMENT

We found Bravo online. We were unfamiliar with the area and were in search of a pre-race pasta dinner. We had reservations and were seated on time on a Friday night. The food was good. The wait staff was friendly and professional. The meal was timed nicely. It was a good experience and the athlete in our group had a great race the following morning.

We have eaten here multiple times. Best to go when there is no crowd. Late afternoon but before 6pm. Food quality is inconsistent but good when there is less pressure on the kitchen. Service is always polite but again suffers at peak times. We will go again with these things in mind.

The food we received was cold and one entree was incorrect. The steak was very salty and the other meals had little flavor. The desserts we received were still frozen and flavor was okay. Overall, there are other Italian places that have much better food for the price. The quality has gone down significantly downhill and we will not be planning to return. Our server was awesome.

Bravo's is one of our favorite restaurants in the Fredericksburg area. The food is always good and the serving staff friendly. The menu offers a wide variety of choices including pastas, pork chops, grilled salmon, and shrimp. Their loyalty program is very generous. We often receive $10 off or a free appetizer. Look forward to our next visit!

I made a reservation for a group of eight, and Bravo put us, unasked, in the private room. That was so perfect for us! The table in that room is round, so everyone could hear everyone else easily. The food selections, taste, appearance and value were spot on. Every time someone recommends a place to eat, I tell them to try Bravo.
